nag SAHM/WAHM ako for a month last month.  buti na lang may mga nakuha akong jobs nung time na yun sa oDesk kasi need din naman namin ni baby ng panggastos namin. this july, i was surprised to receive a call from a multinational company, di naman kasi ako nag-aapply. they gave me an offer that i couldn't resist compensation and benefits wise. i had to be practical din kasi since i'm a single mom and lumalaki din ang gastusin ni baby. ayoko namang iasa sa parents ko ang bills namin, i feel kasi na di tama since my baby baby is my responsibility, not theirs, so i decided to accept the offer. i'm proud to say naman na super hands on pa rin ako kay baby and habol talaga siya sa akin... kailangan lang talaga na mag effort na i-balance out lahat. i make sure na as much as possible ako ang nag aalaga kay baby kahit na super pagod and puyat ako. minsan nga lang inaantok sa work pero carry naman.

inggit ako sa mga SAHM/WAHM kasi talagang nasusubaybayan nila yung kids nila. as much as i want to be one, hindi talaga pwede eh.

I've been weighing things for months now if i'll continue to work or to be sahm. My ils take care of our baby pag sa work kami. I dont want how my mil takes care of her coz yun gusto niya ang nasusunod even we tell her many times how it should be so napaisip na  ko magresign para ako na lang magalaga kay baby but hubby told me na baka mabore daw ako sa bahay. Then i got pregnant with our 2nd baby. Im on bed rest for 2 mos. na so naisip ko dapat na talaga siguro ako magresign. just yesterday i got a call from my manager that my work will be transferred back to US and il be given chance to apply naman to other division of the company. Now, i have made my decision na. God helped me to make it easier to decide. Ang galing talaga ni Lord.

I'm a career woman this time, it gives me an assurance for the future of my family as well. Besides, being a working mom  somehow gives me an achievement that I will never get by being a housewife ( that's for my POV). But when I gave birth lately to my youngest (10 yrs gap nila ng eldest ko), I feel sad of not being at home, i miss my little baby when I'm at the office, I even drive home just to be with her during lunchbreak even how little time I can spend it with her. There are pro's and cons of bring a working mom, it depends in every family how to decide for it.

Well, If only I have a choice, Iíd rather be a SAHM than spend my whole day in the office. Itís my dream to take care of my baby and hubby, supervising the house, serving them, household chores, 24/7Ö Iíd love to be w/ my baby all the time. I havenít experience yet to be a SAHM because since I got pregnant, I never stopped working. Since my hubby doesnít have a job now, I donít have a choice. But when the time comes that my hubby is earning well, or has an opportunity abroad w/ a pay that could support us, Iíll retire and just have a business at home w/ my childÖ

It's my choice to be career woman.. I know how important it is to take care of your child.. Saludo ako sa mga SAHMS.. nut in my case.. I want to stailize our finances kaya i chose to work  ;)

Since march 2011, SAHM ako having been 3 months pregnant with our 2nd baby. I decided to resign from my job since my 1st child is going to school already last june. I've been also a SAHM during my 1st child's first  1.5 years before working again. With hubby working abroad and no immediate relatives to take care of my kids, i dont have a choice but to be a SAHM. i do miss having a work, earning your own money and achieving something for yourself. Sometimes  low self esteem creeps in when even the ones closest to you cannot appreciate the sacrifices you are doing for your kids. :( So after recovery, I plan to look for a home-based job and be a WAHM to suffice my needs as a mother, wife  and a woman. Nevertheless, i wouldnt trade for anything all the times I am and will be spending with my kids.  :)

SAHM ako after giving birth to my second child.. i have a 2nd grader daughter, 1 1/2 year old son and a newborn son (exclusive breastfeeding)..I'm the only one who can take good care of them.. may be 1 year or two i'll be back to work.. Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs.. since the payment is pure love. i also  salute all career woman with kids, their sacrifices, it takes a lot of courage to leave your kids at home with their nannies...

Hi Mommies, I don't know what SAHM mean's but I'd like to be one. I am working mom, hays! I have no choice but to ensure the future of my daughter. If life will be good in the near future, I would rather be SAHM.. serving my family and enjoying the quality times with them!

That was my question when I gave birth to my 1st baby. Especially CS operation ako kaya I had 78 days with him. Breastfeeding pa ako that time kaya it's really hard to decide. We talk about it, gusto ni hubby SAHM na lang ako kasi maganda naman kita ng business namin. I also consulted my parent. In the end I decided to continue being a career woman. Total nakasupport naman parents ko sa pagbabantay kay baby. Kumuha lang ako ng maid para may makatulong mother ko pero si mother ang full time kay baby kaya di ako worried. Tsaka madalas ako call sa house at monday to friday lang naman work ko. Si hubby naman anytime pwede magstay sa house. Sa 2nd baby ko nagiisip na naman ako kung magreresign ako kasi masyado malambing baby ko, ayaw sa bottle magmilk kaya umiiyak talaga ako. Pero nasanay din sya magmilk sa bottle. After ilang years nasabi ko sa sarili ko na ok naging decision ko kasi ang hirap ng buhay ngayon at bagsak business. Iba pa din ang may monthly salary. Lalo na ngayon na preggy ako at malapit na manganak.  :). 3rd CS operation ko na kaya masyado magastos. Ngayon pinagsasabay ko work sa office at sariling business ko. Need to work hard for our going to 3 kids. I'm happy naman kasi nabibigay namin needs nila emotionally at financially. Full time kasi kami sa kanila everynight at every weekends... :)
